The Calcutta High Court on Tuesday directed the West Bengal government to produce all police records pertaining to the case of Rizwanur Rehman, who was found dead under mysterious circumstances a month after his marriage to the daughter of influential industrialist Ashok Todi.

Justice Dipankar Dutta asked Advocate General Balai Roy to produce by April 22 the records, including Todi's police complaint on August 31 last year, wherein he had alleged that his daughter Priyanka had gone missing.

Justice Dutta also asked the regional director of Doordarshan, Kolkata, to produce the unedited video tape of the then Kolkata police commissioner Prasun Mukherjee's media conference on September 23, two days after Rizwanur's body was found beside a railway track.

At the press conference, Mukherjee had reportedly justified the police intervention in the case.

Rizwanur had married Priyanka against the wishes of her father, under the Special Marriage Act on August 18 last year and the couple started living together at Rizwanur's residence from August 21.

It was alleged that the couple was summoned to the Kolkata Police headquarters Iin Lalbazar thrice at the behest of Todi and his relatives and Rizwanur was intimidated by senior officers.

Priyanka went back to her father's home on September 8 following a written assurance by her uncle that she could return to her in-laws house after a week. However, she failed to return.
